My current driver model is a 2017 M1 9.5 with an ATMOS 8TX. I'm interested in being an early tester because I love new technology, first and foremost. I am definitely one of those guys that is anticipating new equipment and seeing whether or not it's worth the upgrade. I think it would be really cool to compare it to a 2 year old model because it's along the same cycle that people replace their phones. Is it worth the upgrade? I know it is because I follow the tech, but I think it would be worthwhile to show people it's something they need more than just a "want."
My current driver is a TaylorMade 2017 M4 with a 9.5° loft and Project X HZRDUS Yellow X-Stiff shaft. Unfortunately I don't know the exact weight of the shaft but it might be 75g.
I was wondering love how or if the new M5/ M6 can improve my game and ball speed. I'm also looking forward to see if spin is reduced and a propably gain of few yards! But to be honest the most important topic would be that I don't need no longer excuses for my wife for new golf equipment.
I am now retired and need to try a new driver one that goes a little straighter and i think these would be a perfect fit for me ansd i would be prowd to be a early tester for taylormade
Taylormade SLDR, 10.5*, Fujikura Motore Speeder Tour Preferred Tour Spec 7.3 (77g), X Flex
Top Reasons Why I'm Your Guy:
- Former hockey player with short, inside swing plane and lots of load at the top of the swing. (115mph club head speed, but don't get anywhere near parallel at P4)
- Former NCAA D1 golfer (lowest handicap +2.7, current handicap 2.9) [I need all the help I can get!]
- Large network of NJSGA (New Jersey State Golf Association) members. A good review would spread quickly!
- Taylormade loyalist, to the extent that I'm still playing TP Smoke irons from 2008, but I'm not yet a beleiver in the new Taylormade technology (hence the SLDR in the bag). Feels like a marketing play with SpeedPocket, then TwistFace, then SpeedFoam, and I would love to be disproved first-hand by the new technology. I'm sure the technology in any new driver would blow me away, but I would welcome the opportuntiy for Taylormade to retain my business by "proving it" in the Early Testers Program.
- Upcoming golf trips to Scottsdale, Las Vegas, Streamsong are prime locations to test the new technology, not to mention simulators in NYC.
I would love to test the inverse T-Track and the Speed Injected Twist Face on the M5 models.
2018 10.5* Taylormade M3. Aldila rogue silver 70 XStiff shaft with white golf pride tour wrap grip. I have been using taylormade equipment since I started playing golf 20 years ago. I usually upgrade to the new wood technology every 2 years. I typically pass down my equipment to other members of our club to get them invested into the taylormade equipment. I would like to be included in the early release to upgrade to the great new technology this year and help out the high school golf team with the donating of my 2018 driver!
